This could have easily been labeled "The Tender Trap." I knew Loretta made up that doctor's name in order to engage the guy in conversation and I knew that he purposely said yes so as to begin talking to her.

Right away, the guy wants nothing to do with getting married and Loretta, a widow here, had a happy marriage and wanted to rewed. Sociologists always tell us that widowed people who had successful marriages are more willing to remarry than those who did not have such marriages.

It was funny about first dining together on the boat headed towards Paris and the guys that Loretta met up with in order to make our guy jealous.

The ending was totally predictable.
